Emergence

“If we could agree that for six months we would not ask How?, something in our lives, our institutions, and our culture might shift for the better.  It would force us to engage in conversations about why we do what we do, as individuals and as institutions.  It would create the space for longer discussions about purpose, about what is worth doing.  It would refocus our attention on deciding what is the right question, rather that what it the right answer.”

                                    – Peter Block, the answer to how is yes

On Saturday, February 13th, the Health Team met for the second time, two weeks after the first gathering…  We had lively discussions about the possibilities related to improving the health of people here in Yavapai County.  So – what’s next?  Asking the right questions is part of the challenge.  Having good information is another.  Go to the Health tab for more on the Health Team and the challenges of the group in exploring what it takes to engage in transformational change in our community.
